St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully devoted to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All concerns are passed through members of staff who are trained as ‘Designated Safeguarding Leads’ in school in compliance with the ‘sharing of information’ guidance.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mr Simmonds, Headteacher. The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL) are Mrs Setter and Mrs Moyse, Assistant Headteachers.
If you have any serious concerns about your child or any other pupil at St Joseph’s School, please do not hesitate to contact the Child Protection Lead or Deputy Lead who know who to contact for the best advice and help and is experienced in using the appropriate degree of confidentiality.
Please see the school’s safeguarding policy below and the code of conduct we as our staff to adhere to. Also an information leaflet that is made available for visitors to the school.
